THE CALL OF GOD
Late one cold winter's night in mid-1987, while studying for exams I was challenged by the Gospel message being broadcast on the radio. The challenge was that I was blind and unable to see, which I naturally disputed and lost to the glory of God, amen. He challenged me to surrender my life to Him, and after a few nights of wrestling with God I gave my all to Christ. He opened my eyes to reality and I saw the hardness of people towards each other and felt God's love for them. In 1989 I left my hometown Stilfontein in the Klerksdorp district and made my home in Rustenburg, during this time my wife Annetjie and my two children all gave their hearts to Jesus. There He opened my understanding to the scriptures and started to disciple me in His ways. Later I chose between my career as a future electrical engineer and being a disciple, I chose the latter and went and worked back on the tools as an artisan. In His faithfulness God started training me for the mission fields, bringing the gospel to the many different nations working in the mines He taught and empowered me to work in the harshest of conditions and Christ was preached in the very bottom pits of the earth. [ GLORY TO JESUS.] Needless to say the day came when He challenged me to a fulltime calling as an evangelist/teacher of the Word. In December 1994 we left all and God led us into the Eastern Cape where we are based at this time, also a preparation and time of learning, being discipled by the Holy Spirit. We have criss crossed the Eastern Cape with the Gospel, mostly amongst the poorer and less fortunate people, using whatever whenever, we have been able to reach many with the love of Christ. Living only by faith and trusting in God for our every need, I have seen thousands surrender to Christ, nearly every new testament miracle has been done, and much of Gods word and signs confirmed as we preached, seeing that Jesus is alive and with his disciples in the frontline. We have lived the Word and believe more than ever and can confirm the truth of the Gospel as the only answer for this world. We have seen and felt the need of the poor and lost, their cries and heart sore their laughter and joy as they grabbed out for our Lords saving grace. [ What blessed privilege amen.]
In December 1995 God gave me a vision for Africa and led me to establish the ALL AFRICA MISSIONS TRUST [A.A.M.T.] to facilitate the spreading of the Gospel to all nations. From the tip of southern Africa northwards to the ends of the earth, He who is faithful will do this. Amen.
Brothers and sisters what more can I say but that God who has called us into fellowship with His dear Son is faithful .
ESTABLISH A PLATFORM FROM WHICH YOU CAN LAUNCH OUT
We felt led to move to a new area and further down the coast we found a town Aston Bay we launched out in faith and have our own property from which we are able to reach out to the lost. God has made it possible to work with some of the local ministries as we were building and renovating the base, then the reminder “TAKE MY LOVE TO THE NATIONS “. I started to reach back to the Northern Province from where I initially came thinking that I would be able to raise a team from among them, who would “stand and fight” and I was aiming to cross by vehicle into Botswana and up towards my calling knowing I must go to the nations no matter what. Certain dynamics changed and the door was not opened so I returned home after a word from a prayer warrior, still yearning to answer the call and then, God….Praise His Holy Name opened a door into Zambia. I climbed on a plane with a young evangelist and flew into the unknown, by plane, taxi, bus and on foot I set as Paul would have and in two weeks we touched three cities in such a way that the “cry has gone up come help us”. I have invitations as far as the DRC and even beyond, I did everything in my own power to stir up others to respond as I saw that if we are going to bring this Gospel to the nations we would have to move on a far greater scale and in such a way that we would reach those that are out of reach and left to perish. I need to be able to move in such a way that the churches and believers would rally with me to reach the lost, many of the lost can't go to church and are dying in a spiritual wasteland. Let me relate what I felt as I traveled by plane over Africa……
As far as the heavens are above the earth, so far above the heavens is God's Heaven and so also His Glory.
As I look down from the window of the plane I behold the earth below and ponder that at this height I see a lot, not in detail but in distance. The earth becomes like a field below and I wonder the Powers that are controlling all this, how different their perspective must be, counties are like farms and cities are like kraals.
Then this task at hand seems to be easier as I look at it country by country and surely if I can evangelize with this view the task becomes simpler, and city wide evangelism makes all the more sense and will quicken the Lords return . Let it be so to the Glory of Jesus the Son Of God.
During the first half of 2008 I was eager to pursue the road back to those who I had seen in 2007 yet it seemed as if I was ahead of schedule and that which I had seen happen was at a distance to me except from the videos and recordings that kept reminding me. I decided to reach out locally and build a team, God faithfully brought young evangelist to me and together we reached out locally and God did many amazing miracles like I have never seen before, yet as I pondered on the response and the value that was added by the people was not good and I felt I need to meet people who will value God's presence. I found myself saying I am going to America……
2008 the ministry goes international and I see people coming from all the nations to an outreach in America….seeking God and putting value on the Gospel and on God's presence.
All Africa Missions and Beyond is now in that phase of reaching out to all the nations and has an international leg taking it into the future, Africa Ministries International and from this point it has an African leg and an International Leg.
I believe that the International leg is going to add value so that our call to reach Africa is also going to gain momentum seeing the harvest is so great in all the earth and workers still so few I believe that the peoples from all the nations will rally together to honor the words of our Lord and Savior. Go and make disciples of all nations………. Math. 28:18>>20.
Let us together heed the call whether you go or send, let us bring Glory to Jesus.
